LAST March 12, Artist Center talent Sef Cadayona hosted a mini-dance contest and ice cream party for the "tambays" at the Executive Lounge of GMA Network Center.
From a list of talented aspirants, three groups namely, Simple Guys from Quezon City; I’am Crew District from Montalban, Rizal; and Technical Force from San Mateo, Rizal, were given the chance to showcase their best dance moves and choreography which amazed the Kapuso artist and other guests who witnessed the presentation.
In an interview, Sef said that he’s glad that despite the fact that they don’t have the proper training and rehearsal venues, the aspiring dancers still managed to join the dance contest and showed their undeniable dancing prowess.
"Nakakatuwa na makita ang kanilang talent kahit sa simpleng mini-dance contest na ito. I was so amazed dahil wala man silang proper rehearsal bilang sa kalsada sila sumasayaw. They are just oozing with talent at hindi biro ang competing piece nila. Nag-enjoy ako na mapanood sila at makasama sa araw na ito," he said.
After the show-stopping performances from the three groups, Technical Force took home the grand prize while Simple Guys and I’am Crew District placed second and third. They were all given cash prizes and trophies from Sef.
Being someone who has a passion for dancing, he reminded the aspiring dancers to never stop dreaming and doing what they love.
"Sinabihan ko sila to never stop dreaming and do the things na nakakapagpasaya sa kanila. Build a goal and stick to it because I can see the talent they have at kapag na-hone pa ito malayo pa ang kanilang mararating," Sef said.
And when he was asked about his birthday wish this year, "I always treasure the work that has been given to me and I'm very thankful. There’s only one ultimate wish that I have though na sana matupad with what I wanna do as an artist. Mapasaya at mapatawa ang mga manonood at mapawi ang kalungkutan nila habang pinapanood nila ako," he shared.
